What’s Blooming at Lookout Point?

May 10th, 2012 by Kristie Rosset

In a stroll through the gardens on this fine day, the blooms are truly eye candy. Besides the magnolias, hydrangeas, gardenias, Brazilian verbena, lilies, and butterfly bush, our feathered friends provided amusement.

Cardinals, ducks “Ricky & Lucy”, finches, mourning doves, robins, and scores of other birds were feasting, playing, and bathing in the gardens. The nest of baby robins will soon be empty.

We invite you to come enjoy a splendid space for relaxation and beauty at our Hot Springs B&B!

Another Beautiful May wedding at Lookout Point!

June 18th, 2011 by Kristie Rosset

David and Leilani Long recently got married in our lakeside gardens and were kind enough to send us a few of the absolutely beautiful pictures! A personal favorite of mine would be this one of their Converse high-tops! They were both so laid back and just fun to be around. This has to be the most adorable picture of Chuck Taylor’s I have seen to date. Congratulations guys! Weddings at Lookout Point Lakeside Inn are always a delight!

Hot Springs’ Labyrinth Inspires Reflection & Poetry

April 7th, 2011 by Kristie Rosset

One of the truly unique features of Lookout Point’s lakeside gardens is the 11-circuit labyrinth.  If you’re unfamiliar with a labyrinth, it is a historic form of walking prayer and meditation.  Unlike a maze, the labyrinth has no dead ends.  Ours is modeled after the Chartres, France labyrinth from the 13th century!

The Inn's labyrinth

Recent guest David R., after walking the labyrinth, was inspired to write this poem. We are truly honored!

A Place That Breathes Deeply

A place that breathes deeply that falls off the hill

Dionysus lays waiting to fend off your ills.

You yield to the magic  of natures great feast

And drink in the nectar that quietens the beast.

Alone in the garden the labyrinth stands round

To take you to places without any sounds.

A spot in the center, the middle is thine

The future is here, Yes, eternity shines.

Lake Hamilton Wedding, Hot Springs

May 22nd, 2010 by Ray Rosset

Beautiful couple

Last week, the rains stopped in time for a garden wedding along the shores of Lake Hamilton in Hot Springs. Surrounded by immediate family and friends, Terry & Cassie exchanged vows and rings.

This sweet, fun couple were perfectly relaxed and calm for the wedding. The high heels were kicked aside right after the ceremony, opting for barefoot comfort. Congratulations to Cassie & Terry!

Lookout Point photographer, Kelley, captured the love shared by this couple and their family.
